With a large charcoal market still existing in Europe, America, & Asia, its global worth continues to retain a multi-billion Dollar value. The business of exporting charcoal across the borders still poses a huge opportunity for investors looking to make investments.
For instance, 70% of the slightly over 60,000 metric tons of charcoal used yearly in the United Kingdom comes from Africa. A charcoal supplier exporting between to 10,000 metric tons yearly would be generating an annual revenue of well over of 2,000,000 Euros.
Do not be deceived, people are making thousands/millions of dollars from this business. You can source for buyers online or through friends, acquaintances and family. Once you’ve received an order, you’ll need to work with a shipping company to help you transport the product to your buyers. Most times, the buyer will tell you how to package the product; some may decide that you ship to them in bulk while others may ask you to package them in several small units for easy handling.
The Thy Freight Services offers shipping services and other export related services you might require for the successful export of your charcoal. We major in Charcoal export!
The cost of starting a charcoal business has been put between N1,500,000 to N2,000,000. This, of course, doesn’t mean you cannot start at a lower cost or run into cost far greater than the estimate given here.
